UFC 274 is happening tonight at 7pm PT / 10pm ET (or 3am BST). Should you want to watch the event in all its entirety, though, the early prelims start at 2:30 PM / 5:30 ET (that’s 10:30 BST). Here’s how to watch UFC 274 anywhere in the world.
The Lightweight title will be contested tonight, as Charles Oliveira will be attempting to defend his belt against Justin Gaethje, posing stiff competition. Oliveira originally won the championship gold last year with an impressive second-round knockout victory over Micheal Chandler in UFC 262’s headlining event. It’s important to remember that do Bronx hasn’t lost a bout in over five years. He most recently impressed with a third-round submission win over Dustin Poirier in December, so The Highlight certainly has his work cut out for him.
Justin Gaethje has only conceded three losses in his professional MMA career, with the knockout specialist coming into UFC 274 with a recent win over Michael Chandler, too. Prior to his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov (who remained undefeated until retiring), The Highlight had a string of vicious first-round KO punch victories over the likes of Edson Barboza and Donald Cerrone. Can Gaethje summon the strength to put do Bronx down and attain the gold? That remains to be seen, the odds are currently in Oliveira’s favor, however, we think it’s too close to call right now.

Of course, it’s not just the Lightweight title that’s on the line at UFC 274, as Rose Namajunas will be defending her Strawweight belt against Carla Esparza, too. Now, this isn’t the first time that the two have faced off, originally all the way back in 2014 for the finale of The Ultimate Fighter 20, with Esparza coming out victorious with a rear-naked choke submission victory in the third round. However, much has changed in the eight years that separate these encounters, meaning this rematch should be a highlight of the year.
Let’s just say that they call Namajunas ‘Thug’ for a very good reason, as Weili Zhang found out last year in the two’s back-to-back bouts. Rose quickly ended things with a brutal first-round head kick knockout in just 1 minute and 18 seconds, with the rematch later in the year going the full five rounds. That’s to say nothing of Esparza’s most recent victories, as the second-round TKO against Xianonan Yan can attest. Which of these two ladies will come out on top when all is said and done? We’ll find out later tonight!
UFC 274 is shaping up to be a truly stacked night that you’re not going to want to miss out on. Here’s how to watch the double main-event PPV where you are.
